Historical Note

The track was built in 1896 as a horse track, but went out of business after a couple of years when the state of Wisconsin banned wagering. The track reopened in 1913 as an motor racing facility. Both cars and motorcycles raced on it. Scramble motorcycle racing (motocross precursor) was popular there in the 50s and 60s. In the 70s, the track was used by Outboard Marine Corp (Johnson Motors) to test snowmobiles.
